Gretchen Wilson, Brian Kelley, More Perform at Got Your 6 VetFest
The Bob Woodruff Foundation hosted the second annual Got Your 6 VetFest, a family-friendly event for the local veteran and service member community, at the Loveless Cafe and Barn in Nashville on July 15.
The evening’s live programming included special musical performances by Gretchen Wilson, Brian Kelley, The War and Treaty, Briston Maroney and Ashley Cooke. Longtime WKRN News anchor Bob Mueller received a surprise award, the Generous Persson Award, onstage during the event. Mueller, the winner of 10 Emmy Awards and a Peabody Award, was recognized for his tireless contribution to journalism and commitment to helping his community. The event also included rides, games, and a raffle for guitars signed by musical legends including Dolly Parton, Keith Urban, Reba and Amy Grant.
“The Bob Woodruff Foundation has spent years helping to educate people about the physical and hidden wounds of war. Today, most veterans and their families are thriving, and it’s great to see the progress we’ve made,” says Anne Marie Dougherty, CEO of the Bob Woodruff Foundation. “But some veterans still face real challenges—loss of income, food, housing insecurity, or social isolation. They need our help, and that’s why this Foundation exists: to support the men and women who made the commitment to stand for us. Our service members had our 6—our backs—as they say in the service. And we have theirs.”
The Bob Woodruff Foundation was founded in 2006 after reporter Bob Woodruff was wounded by a roadside bomb while covering the war in Iraq. Since then, the organization has raised awareness about the tough challenges veterans and military families face and invested over $120 million to ensure that our nation’s veterans, service members and their families have stable and successful futures.
